Acclaimed Tripath TA2020 T-Amp based Class T Hi-Fi stereo audio amplifier
The latest revision: Even better than the first! Same great sound, improved by your feedback
The Mini T is a so-called "Class T" integrated amplifier. This type of amplifier was made famous by the Sonic Impact T-Amp several years ago. Sadly the original Sonic Impact T-amp was of basic build quality and this led to many audio experts/enthusiasts modifying the amp to get the best out of it.
Introducing the latest Mini T
This Mini T-Amp gives you all the features of the original amp but with improved casing, design, power and components.
Built on Tripath audio technology, this T-amp is both very compact in size and offers very high performance. It is incredibly efficient and uses very little power compared to traditional amplifiers. The Mini T uses the TA2020 amplifier chip (big brother to the TA2024) which is now widely regarded as the best in class.
Superior design & features
The power output has been uprated to 20W max RMS per channel and can now easily drive speakers up to 150W (tested). Most sensitive speakers (86db+ for example) will really shine and get the best from our TA2020 based circuitry.
The discrete metal case design dissipates heat very efficiently and the stylish brushed alloy front panel would not look out of place next to most hi-fi separates.
As you would expect from the Mini T, the volume and power controls are located on the front panel and all inputs/outputs are on the rear. This is unlike some other T-Amp models. Another nice touch is shown when the unit is powered up - smooth indigo blue LEDs shine around the volume control.
Note: The latest Mini T doesn't blind you with blue LED light, it is diffused around the volume control. No need for blue tack :)
All rear audio connectors are gold plated. Line input is via RCA to RCA or 3.5MM to RCA cables (these are not supplied). The stereo speaker output connections have been updated to better support standard 4mm banana plugs. We recommend banana plugs for ease of use! This said, the amp does still support standard bare/cut cables.
Power supply included
For those demanding more power this Mini T is supplied with an uprated external 12V 5A power supply there is no need to spend time seeking out alternatives at high cost. This is an external "brick" style not wall plug power supply. Some argue that the additional ampage leads to deeper bass output and extra clarity - we certainly do not disagree!
If desired the Mini T can be fed with a higher voltage regulated power supply up to 13.8V, you can find these rather large bench PSU's at Maplin. Other experts have found that running Tripath amps from 12V marine batteries can lead to a smoother tube like sound. Disclaimer: Sealed lead acid batteries can be dangerous, and you do so at your own risk!
The circuit design uses many high end branded components, a thick gold coated PCB and even includes full speaker protection, overload protection and power on/off pop suppression. The ALPS branded volume adjustment is both smooth and accurate.
Tripath chipsets are used by several high end manufacturers like Audio Research & Teac. Be amazed as you begin to hear your music in clarity normally found in expensive audio hardware. If you don't know much about the greatness of the T-Amp, simply Google for reviews!
Don't just take our word for it, this amp really does sound great for the price. Please feel free to browse the hundreds of happy customers in our eBay feedback section above.
